at this morning's dish of "scrambled politics." president obama's 23 executive orders on gun control are still being attacked by conservative lawmakers in washington. republican congressman steve stockman of texas has introduced a bill to outlaw the orders as unconstitutional. previously, he threatened to file impeachment proceedings against the president because of the executive orders. beyonce singing the national anthem sparked a lot of reaction over lip syncing. the performance was praised bay reeja franklin who said she did a beautiful job. and aretha who sang at the 2009 inauguration in that hat said she even might prerecord in the future. clint east wad's performance at the republican national convention when he talked to an empty chair, that was a big attention getter. now come word that chair he used is on display in the chair of the rnc chair in the office of the rnc chair. john boehner gave a talk to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college footbal
playbook. blame president obama for the polarized political climate zoosh i think instead of trying to bring people together was a manifesto for, hey, it's my way or the highway. i don't think that's necessarily productive. >> we will get a reality check on the grand ole party's grand ole problems next on "now." excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. >> what do you think the party must do better? where do we go in the future? this is your chance to make your voice heard, and we're listening. >> as the rnc begins its annual winter meeting in charlotte, chairman is soliciting ideas on how to renew, grow, and win. mretco reports that he will tell attendees tomorrow that
's put him if a little perspective politically. kerry served as president obama's mock debate partner during his re-election campaign. but he has pressured the administration at times urging the white house last year to speed up with the draul of u.s. troops from afghanistan. kerry was also influential in the administration's decision to intervene in libya. in case you forgot from his 2004 bid for the white house, he is one of the wealthiest members of the senate. he and wife teresa, heir to the heinz ketchup fortune are worth $180 million with a wide range of investments. in a letter to the state department legal adviser, kerry said he will divest any holdings that could be a conflict of interest within 90 days of being confirmed. he'll be introduced to day about the the current secretary hillary clinton. >>> today's appearance expected to take on a much different tone than the tough questioning she faced yesterday about the deadly attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it, specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
a different theme. >> would hillary clinton really adopt an obama continuation message? i mean, she is her own political entity. this is a continuation of clintonism. >> i agree, i thought all the blind quotes sounded to me like joe biden people trying to sound like they could be anyone's people. i don't think if you're hillary clinton there is an issue about a private conversation. if you're hillary clinton and you want to go out there and do it, you will go out there, and crush who is in the primary, joe biden or cuomo, up need to. it seems much more of a joe biden-type argument, saying obviously we'll coordinate and work out. >> karen finney, joe biden is a great vice president, it is a job that is hard to be great at. he has found a way to be great at. is there any way he could be talked into it doing it for 16 years. >> the longest serving vice president in history. >> are you suggesting the joe biden-hillary clinton ticket? i had that thought today. he has actually made the role of vice president in the way i think she has re-made the role of secretary of state. i think the country would
of fire. his approval ratings will likely decline in the way obama's will decline over the next year. hillary clinton will be off safe somewhere not political skin in the game. >> look, it may hurt him in a general election, but i would say joe biden would be thrilled to have to worry about a 2016 general election. i do think guns, if he can do something, helps him. helps with the inside crowd. and i do think -- if you would ask joe biden today, hey, joe. and it wasn't on television, are you running for president you know what he'd say? yes. and i don't think he would pause. >> although hillary clinton is formidable. it's "saturday night live." it's the parodies. >> that's right. >> those guys, they decide to caricaturize you, you're dead. hillary clinton came across today as presidential. listen to her. >> today after four years in this job, traveling nearly a million miles, visiting 112 countries, my faith in our country and our future is stronger than ever. every time that blue and white airplane carrying the words united states of america touches down in some far-off capital, i f
, was a gift to political journalists, that denver debate. b, it said so much about who obama was. the fact that was the day he didn't feel he needed to really deliver, but more importantly to me one of the most powerful scenes in the book is the young obama staffers in chicago watching the debate unfold and being horrified because they had convinced themselves that if obama was going to lose this, it was their fault, it was on the staffers. but what they saw last night was, oh, my god, our hero let us down. they were so shocked by it. >> one of the other revelations in the book is where you talk about the fact that the president faces at least ten, ten credible threats to his safety. and i guess that explains why following the inauguration speech when he was seen walking in washington, he was surrounded by countless numbers of agents because he literally can't do that without that level of protection. >> i mean, it makes me nervous to even talk about it. watching those scenes, i was thinking i am glad i'm not part of the secret services. it would be so anxiety provoking. and also the gun c
an eye on these little buggers. they've got their mickey mouse ears on. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, president obama won. this president has no time to waste and he's using it to push for change on gun control, on immigration, on climate change, on ending the ban on women serving in combat. he's got a full agenda. and it was on full display today. remember all of that bluster from governor romney about undoing wall street reform, letting consumers fend for themselves? yeah, not going to happen. today, the president nominated hits to both the sec and the consumer protection bureau. the message? we're moving forward. anyone guess where we'll be if the other side were in charge? >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that: he can't do that to himself. >> that chair, that chair was the sill bomb of everything wrong with the gop. an embarrassment on the biggest stage. the gop literally became a joke. wonder where that chair is today? here it is, the clint eastwood chair. it
obama in 2008, something changed that had been the case for 16 years. from 1992 to 2008, the two co-villains in the republican party sort of narrative of the american politics were bill and hillary clinton and every minute of every day the republicans were attacking the clintons over everything and the minute they were not the face of the democrat party the clintons came to play a new role in sort of a republican narrative. they were the good democrats that represented the bygone era and fell to me watching the hearings, yes, i believe she handled herself very well, a masterful performance but if she decides to run for president in 2016, it is back to what life used to be like for her, where every single day, every single way, republicans whether it's libya, whether it's anything else, you know as well as i do they'll find whatever it takes to go after her and the great psychological question of the next few months and years. does she want to live through that again or decide, you know what? i'd rather do something else with the time i've got. >> much more popular as a servant than
